There are a few ways to connect a laptop to the internet. First, there's hard-line (such as a modem cord, or phone-cable) and with a laptop, that's it unless you have a wireless card. I do believe your model (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=430816&taskId=135) has a wireless card, but as you can see there are MANY versions of the 2200! For the most part, your particular exact model won't matter.

If you have wireless somewhere, all you need is the access codes if there is security on the wireless networks.
If you don't have wireless, and don't have internet service at the place you wish to connect at (such as your home) and have not set that up yet, you have a few options
1) Get internet at that place (such as your house; you'll call and they'll come install it, and usually rent or sell you a modem of some kind. The sales reps usually can explain what they offer and tell you what would work best).
2) Call a cell phone company and see if they offer a service of the same kind, either at the house OR via a phone/your current phone service (etc). Often this entails a cable from your laptop to the phone, or a SIM card in the laptop, or a PCMCIA card (check ebay for these, before you buy into a plan, some might be outdated so get informed).
3) Dig around; there's tools out there that one can use to make a wireless PCMCIA or express card or USB wireless device that can uplink to a satelite (usually this is more expensive). Also youtube might have some information on how to get free internet.

You will need to get internet either in a public "wifi hotspot" (often free at public libraries or coffee shops in the USA), or via a hardware line to your residence.

There isn't a way to plug a laptop in directly to the internet at a residence without some kind of modem, though you CAN often use the telephone lines directly into a PC to use software for faxing and telephone stuff.

good luck!

Cant connect a rca soundbar to my emerson tv


If your Emerson TV has a digital coax output connector identified as such and your RCA soundbar has a digital coax input connector, you will have to purchase an appropriate cable and connect it. Some soundbars, such as Vizio, have left and right RCA audio inputs to match similar outputs on a TV set.

How do i initially install the sbg901 wireless cable modem


Locate the MAC id number on the modem. May be called the HRC mac id. Write this number down.

Connect the modem to an active cable outlet with a coax cable (the type that you would screw into the back of your tv).

Connect your computer to the modem with an Ethernet cable.

Connect the power cord and plug it into a power outlet.

Turn your computer on.

Call your cable provider and choose the options for tech support for internet.

They will need that MAC id number and then they should be able to set it up on your account and allow access to the internet.

Thanks,
Robert

Tv sparks bad when i apply the cable cord to it


EXTREME DANGER!!!!!


PLEASE LISTEN CLOSELY:

all appliances made in the last forty years have a polarized power cord.

One pin on power plug is small and other larger--the larger goes to the neutral side of the electrical outlet.

If you get sparks when you hook up the coax to the cable fitting--only one of two possible reasons.

Either the polarized cord has been defeated (plug modified) or the outlet you are plugged into is not wired right.

Understand--it does not have to be at the set you are using---if somewhere else in you home a cord is defeated or an outlet is bad--it will feed the problem via the coax to every other set in the home connected to the same line.

What you are seeing if you get sparks is the coax fitting has 120 volts AC getting to it either by the coax or from the power outlet--

The easy way to find this is disconnect all coax connectors in the home and with a voltmeter hooked to a earth ground (like a ground rod or pipe made of metal) measure for AC voltage to the coax.

THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION-BE VERY CAREFUL--

If even one set or outlet is bad it will feed this via the coax to all sets in the home---I have seen this before-yes it can destroy a TV! but it can also hurt or kill someone--this is the reason all power cords are now polarized.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ASK ME--IF IN DOUBT HAVE AN ELECTRICAL EXPERT CHECK THE WIRING AND MEASURE FOR AC VOLTAGE TO THE CABLE--ac voltage can kill--it is the same as connecting a wall outlet to the exposed areas of the set.

THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF--DO NOT TREAT IT LIGHTLY!

Connecting the dvd player and the vcr to the tv


On the DVD player you hook the red/white and yellow cords from the DVD to one of the inputs on the back of the TV colored the same. Provided you have another RCA jack input on the tv you can connect this the same way. If not and you have a cable connection or satellite just run the coax into the input on the VCR and run a coax off the output on the VCR and run the other end into the TV. I hope this is of assistance to you.
